I'm looking for any possible information concerning my Doston heritage from Canton, North Carolina. I know about as far back as my great-grandfather and it ends there (my Da died before I could find out more, which is sadly the case for most folks, I'm sure.) All I have is what's in the family bible and the little bit that my mother knows.
My grandfather was Floyd Johnson Doston, (b. Oct 9, 1920 in Canton NC, d. July 20, 2003 in San Antonio, TX.) He married Ella Mae Conley (b. July 7 1923, d. March 30, 2001), in Canton, NC on December 15, 1940.
His father was Rowe Johnson Doston (b. August 16, 1896, d. 1986) who married Annie M. Carver (b. December 25, 1896) in Canton on June 11, 1916. They lived in Canton until they died.
Their children were my grandfather Floyd Johnson Doston, Glen E. Doston (b. June 27 1917, d. Oct 13 1918), Edith Elizabeth Doston (b. March 26 1919), Dorthy Jean Dotson (b. March 25 1927, d. March 25 1927), and Betty Louise Doston (B. June 17, 1932, d. Sept 29 1960). Betty Louise had a daughter by the name of Linda Lee (b. April 2, 1950 who Grandaddy Rowe and Grandmother Doston adopted when Betty Louise was murdered in Texas by her estranged husband in 1960.)
My grandparents had two children, Jon Glenn Doston and Joyce Carol Dotson (my mother...b. April 3 1955 in Kettering, England.)
If anyone has any info concerned any close or distant relations of Rowe or any of the other family, it would be much appreciated. Thank you!
